Event description

Description

Join us for our third installment this year in the Vancity Lady Boss Speaker Series.

As female entrepreneurs we take pride in calling ourselves Lady Bosses. We either run our own business, lead a team of people or have made some significant accomplishments. However, the road to get there hasn’t always been easy. We would love to wake up in the morning and enter a work environment that was full of positive ongoing support but more often than not, we have all worked with or for people that have created a challenging or toxic environment.

Some of these challenging environments include being the odd man out especially in scenarios where we are the only females in the room. These situations hold all sorts of interesting challenges and stories. However, a Lady Boss never lets this get her down. Rather, we rise to the occasion and turn it into a success story. ( and occasionally, these odds can provide an advantage).

No one knows this better than our feature speaker, Jaclyn Bergeson, founder and owner of Coast Traffic Solutions. The construction industry is a heavily male dominated and succeeding means sometimes learning to play by their rules and hopefully making some of your own along the way.

Coast Traffic Solutions specializes in the efficient design of traffic management plans as well as full road closure services. They work with developers, road builders, and sub-contractors to develop effective traffic management plans at a competitive rate. So whenever you see someone directing traffic around construction, you know Jaclyn probably had something to do with that.

We are lucky enough to have Jaclyn tell the Lady Bosses her story. Why and how she not only got into the construction industry but specifically Traffic Management. What obstacles she faces on a daily basis, and success stories and hopefully some advice for entrepreneurs facing adverse situations (after all, male or female, we all face obstacles).

Join us at Sai Woo for an illuminating evening with Jaclyn and enjoy appies, door prizes and fantastic networking with fellow Boss Ladies.
